Another weekend, another episode of The X Factor is here! Montenegro’s Eurovision 2017 act Slavko Kalezić returned to the competition this week for the Six-Chair Challenge, performing for a place a the Judges’ Houses next week, featuring an appearance from a yet another past Eurovision participant.

The explosive drama continued in The X Factor UK this weekend with the continuation of the Six-Chair Challenge stage of the contest. This weekend saw both the ‘Groups’ and ‘Overs’ categories take to the stage, hoping to keep their place in their category for Judges’ Houses.

Kalezić’s fight for a chair

Performing up against members in his Overs category, Kalezić took to The SSE Arena in Wembley, London to show both the audience and judges what he can bring musically, mainly hoping to gain the support of the mentor in charge of the Overs category: Nicole Scherzinger.

For his Six-Chair Challenge performance, Kalezić opted to sing his version of the song Little bad girl by David Guetta, bringing his usual enthusiastic energy to the arena. Check out Kalezić’s Six-Chair Challenge performance!

Whilst the 3 judges – Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell – each had their own thoughts of the Montenegrin singer, with both Walsh and Osbourne backing the performer, it was down to mentor Scherzinger to decide whether Kalezić’s journey in the competition should continue.

Scherzinger got behind the Eurovision performer and offered Kalezić a chair, with his X Factor journey continuing to the Judges’ Houses stage of the competition alongside fellow Over participants: Matt Linnen, Tracyleanne Jefford, Talia Dean, Kevin Davy and former Dutch Eurovision national finalist Berget Lewis.

Yet another Eurovision star competes

In tonight’s X Factor episode, we saw the return of yet another familiar face from the Eurovision world, namely Jon Lilygreen.

Representing Cyprus at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, Lilygreen made his full appearance in tonight’s continuation of the Six-Chair Challenge stage of the competition, bravely performing his own self-composed song Baby you know.

The Welsh singer initially managed to take a seat following his heart-warming performance, however Lilygreen’s hopes were short-lived following Scherzinger’s decision to offer his seat to a fellow contestant.

The Six-Chair Challenge continues to be a explosive, yet controversial, stage of the competition, causing much upset amongst audience members and viewers.

The Six-Chair Challenge continues into tomorrow evening, with Kalezić’s journey continuing next week in the fourth stage of the competition: Judges’ Houses. Can the Montenegrin hopeful continue his success and gain a place in the Live Shows?
